Lenevo Legion Y720 retains much of the design of its predecessor with an all-black and red colour scheme. There are some slight differences with the Legion Y720 being lightly thinner and sharper. Built from the ground up in an all-metal cover; the laptop is the world’s first Dolby Atmos Windows based PC, as claimed by Lenovo. With NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 graphics, the laptop is the India’s first Oculus certified VR-ready machine that works by plugging a VR headset into the HDMI port. It also comes with Thunderbolt 3 for plug and play option. The Legion 720 also adopts many of its design cues from Lenovo’s largest gaming laptop ever, the IdeaPad Y900, including the central hinge and an optional four-zone RGB keyboard.
The Lenovo Legion Y720 can be configured with Intel Core i7-7700HQ processors and Nvidia GTX 1060 graphics with 6GB of GDDR5 memory. It comes with optional 4K display, up to 32GB of DDR4 RAM and a 2TB HDD or 1TB PCIe SSD, plus a beefy 60Whr battery promising up to 5 hours of battery life.
Gamers can enjoy with FHD IPS anti-glare display on the device. Another feature is the optional RGB backlit keyboard.
The Legion Y720 laptop comes with the option of an integrated Xbox One Wireless receiver, which can support up to four controllers simultaneously for multiplayer gaming.
In addition to a decent complement of standard ports, the Legion Y720 also features a Thunderbolt 3 port as well as a Display Port. The location of the ports seems well thought out, with “permanent” connections positioned either on the left (Ethernet) or far back (HDMI). Disappointing is the fact that Lenovo decided to forgo an SD card slot.
Lenovo Nerve Sense
Gamers can customise settings such as audio, active keys, cooling, and network priority. Lenovo Nerve Sense allows them to record highlights for replaying or uploading to streaming sites.
The devices have been designed with optimised thermal engineering to combat heat even during the most resource-intensive gaming session. The engineered fans and vents are strategically located close to the graphics card and processors to keep hot air moving while the rear-placed thermal vents remove that heat.
